SOURCE: I have a Butterball Electric Turkey Fryer that heated up but when I placed the turkey in the fryer the red indicator went off and it lost power , is there a reset button on the fryer

All appliances that produce heat have a thermal cutoff inside to prevent a fire or meltdown. It's a shame they make them so fragile that it may ruin your special occasion. If you cross the wires on the sensor it may run forever but might be a fire hazzard.

I have a Butterball indoor turkey fryer that lost power and the red light went off, is there a reset button on the fryer


There is a thermal cutoff near the heating element just like all appliances that make heat. It's supposed to stop a house fire but makes these appliance companies a lot of money.

What is the reason for the reset button keep poping out on the dean sm35gm


Hi there!
Reset button of hi-limit switch will only pop-out when its sensing bulb sensed temperature higher tha 450F (trip temperature of hi-limit). Theramostat may be bad allowing oil to reach temp above 450F causing hi-limit to trip-off or hi-limit itself is bad tripping-off at temperature lower than 450F.
Check also the position of the sensing bulb of the hi-limit, it may be positioned touching the heat tube (for gas fryer) or heating element (for electric fryer) that's why it prematurely trips-off.
Regards.

My keating fryer heats the oil fine to temp set on thermostat but will not re fire when oil temp drops unless I push the high limit button. Don't know if the problem is the themostat or high limit...


Sounds like the thermostat is working because it does heat to the right temperature, right? The high limit switch is to shut it down when it gets too hot, so why that helps the unit relight and heat up is strange? Is this gas or electric? Since hitting the reset or high limit button is what is working, I would start there, and replace that... I don't think either part is super expensive, so replacing both wouldn't be too expensive, especially since you have one of the best fryers ever made... Keating is number one in my book, and I know they are expensive to start with, but these two parts shouldn't be much....however I would start with the high limit switch or reset button... If you need a part, we can get you a price....I'm Susan with Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio, 888-542-5959, or you can ask for Paul too. Thanks, Susan REO

It will not turn on


Hi Woodman22191,
I suggest that you do a couple of visual inspections first before doing anything drastic. Here's a list of things that you should check :
- Is the magnetic cord assembly properly attached to fryer socket ? - Is the electrical cord assembly plugged into electrical outlet? - Is the Power ON/OFF Switch is set to ON? - Is the Heating Element Assembly correctly assembled? Make sure Heating Element Assembly is properly installed on base. - Are you using too much or too little oil in the pot? Make sure that you use the recommended amount of oil in the oil pot.
If these things above does not fix the problem, you may need to Reset the Fryer. - Press Reset on Heating Element/Control Panel by inserting a paper clip or any small pointed object into the opening labeled RESET.
I hope this solves the problem. All the best to you. Good luck.

Fryer was working before being cleaned but a cook started it up without the oil now nothing will work?


Hopefully it has kicked out on high limit thermostat. It depends a lot ofn what type of control you have on your fryer. If they are all mechanical controls, the high limit may need to be reset. Open the front door of the fryer. There are two thermostat bulbs in the fryer. One goes to the thermostat with the temperature dial, the other to the high limit thermostat. Hopefully the high limit thermostat that you have will have a small red button sticking out. Push that button in and then relight the pilot as you would normally do. If your high limit thermostat does not have a red button it is an automatic reset high limit. When the fryer pot cools below 300 degrees it should reset itself. If you have electronic computer controls on your fryer you will have to reprogram your thermostat settings.

I have a tefal family pro fryer, when i switch it on the green light comes on instead of the red and it will not heat up. why?


Look for a reset button on the unit, Push it, you will hear a "click' then the unit will work. If not, there is an electrical problem, the element, or temp control is bad.

Fryer quits heating have to hit reset switch


This button should be a high limit switch. If it is a small red button mounted to a 2" x 2" or so device. You most likley have an issue with the thermostat letting it over heat. The best thing to do would be to replace both the thermostat and the high limit for safety reasons.
